With many special events being delayed or even cancelled this year including weddings and holidays, one man from Liverpool did not let this stop his plans to propose. Paul Tayler from Liverpool was due to fly out to Japan on a once in a lifetime trip with his girlfriend Leah and pop the question. After their trip was cancelled for the second time because of Covid, he decided to take matters into his own hands.
Sharing their love for the cinema through their time together, Paul decided to propose to Leah at Everyman Cinema Liverpool, not forgetting to add a touch of Japanese inspiration. A screen was hired and decorated with a selection of lanterns and blossoms trees and after a short video was played on screen, Paul popped the question. The couple then walked out to join some of their closest family and friends waiting in the bar area to celebrate the proposal. (This was in accordance with safety guidelines at the time).
Husband to be Paul Tayler said: “I wanted to propose in Japan this year but it got cancelled twice. We both love going to the cinema so I thought it’d be a good idea to bring Japan and the cinema together. The team at Everyman were truly amazing.”
Stephanie Palmer, Manager of Everyman Cinema Liverpool, said that they loved helping Paul create a moment so special after his and Leah’s original plans went awry. She assured us that it was definitely something that the Everyman staff would be smiling about for months to come.
Jennina O’Neill, centre manager at Metquarter, said: “We’re thrilled to hear about Paul and Leah’s proposal. During these times we want to create a safe and welcoming environment for customers. (We) are glad Paul chose to make it such a special occasion here at Metquarter.”
